I'd heard rumors Ready Player One was going to be made into a movie. Now I see there is a release date and a trailer. Yay! I cannot wait to see it. I hope they do the book justice. It's being made by Stephen Spielberg, so I have some confidence it will.
My advice, if this looks interesting to you and you haven't done so, read the book first! The audio version narrated by Wil Wheaton is also excellent, if you like audio books. No matter how good a job they do with the movie, it won't be able to be as good as the book.
READ THE BOOK! You know you wanna!
There are already very good and helpful reviews for this one, all I can really add is to say I thoroughly enjoyed it.
In case any think they might be lost with the 80's cultural references and gaming, I don't think there's much to worry about. For the most part things referenced are given enough information to be able to follow.
Since a large portion of the action does take place within a mega online multiplayer computer game a reader would need to find that interesting in order to enjoy this, but don't assume you need to be a huge gamer to enjoy it.
I thought this was interesting, well-written, action packed and enjoyed it completely!
And in case this book made you want to play Atari's Adventure again, here ya go:
